Botox & Fillers
What to expect with botox®
You will see results within days and they will last up to 4 months. Botox® does not radically change your facial appearance or expressions. You can still frown or look surprised without those unattractive creases between your brows.
Our physician evaluates all our clients, and will recommend the most appropriate location and dosage to safely achieve the look you want. The injections cause minimum discomfort and rarely result in temporary redness or swelling.
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. To reduce these wrinkles, Juvéderm is eased under the skin to restore the skin’s volume and smooth away the wrinkles and folds such as: “smile lines,” “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), “marionette lines” (folds from corners of lips down the chin), or chin creases.
What to expect with Juvéderm
With Juvéderm, the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. After the injection, you will instantly have restored volume to the crease or wrinkle area. The smooth and natural looking result will last up to 1 year.
Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into our office for treatment and step right back into your life.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?

HOW DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC WORK?
Botox® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with Botox® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice your frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines temporarily look better.
WILL MY FACE LOOK OVERDONE OR UNNATURAL?
Botox® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust Botox® Cosmetic to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC TREATMENT TAKE? WILL IT HURT?
Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. If the HCP deems you to be an appropriate candidate, the injection may take place on that same day. Some patients report that being injected with Botox® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave the office.
HOW MANY INJECTIONS WILL I RECEIVE?
Treatment with Botox® Cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with your specialist, he or she will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. Remember, only Botox® Cosmetic is approved to treat all three of these areas.
For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.
For the frown lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into the muscles between your brows and in your forehead.
For the forehead lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into a muscle in your forehead.
